                I was several times in the Bay View Grand Ixtapa and I strong recommend this apartment, well eqquipped, very clean and with all the appliances working excellent. The buiding is very nice, secure and friendly. The swimming pool area is excellent and there is a restaurant area with reasonable prices. The location is an advantage because it is situated in walking distance to restaurants, food stores and shopping area.

                My wife and I have been to Ixtapa many times. We really love everything about it. Recently we started renting a condo at the BVG. This last trip the condo we normally rent was booked, so we rented from Kevin. We loved everything about this condo. The floor plan is set up so the master bedroom is looking right out over the ocean. All the furniture, TV's and decor was very impressive. Private Wi Fi and cable was really nice plus too. We loved how the condo was just high enough to be out of sight of the pool and above the trees, but not so tall it felt like you were in a high rise. Kevin was very easy to work with and always returned emails and calls quickly. When we come back to Ixtapa this will be our first choice to stay. Thanks Kevin!

                We stayed the first week in January and had a wonderful time. The condo had everything we needed and the view was incredible.! Kevin was quick to respond to any of our questions and was prompt in refunding the cleaning fee. We ate breakfast on the patio and all other meals out. The most memorable meal was in Zhia at a place called El Mediteranio (spelling may be off). Fish and coconut shrimp were delicious, they have a pasta as well which looked good, music and open patio in the back that was lovely. Price was very resonable and would highly suggest going there for a meal. Some of the regulars at the complex go 2-3x a week. The location of the condo was great, with everything we needed within walking distance. We also took a sunset sail which was nice and worth the money($49.00). Had 2 massages ($20.00)with Juanita at the complex and would highly recommend her. Our only concern is that the hotel next to the complex has a nightly show that can get quite loud. It ends by 10 PM. Grab this condo for a trip. I know we will next time we head south.

                Wow, we had the best time EVER on this vacation, makes you want to live there! Kevin was so pleasant to help make our arrangements and answer our questions. The consierge Marcos was so nice and helpful whenever we needed anything. The property is imaculate and very comfortable. The bonus was having the jacuzzi on the patio where we spent time after fishing to relax and watch the sunset. I was excited to find that the restaraunt at the pool had anything from Hamburgers to Seafood, on days when we just chilled out at the pool. The condo itself was more than I expected...loved the artwork/decor and the beds were very comfortable. In a nutshell PERFECTO PARADISE...we WILL be back when we can escape our busy lives again! Gracias muy bueno, Jack & Cheryl

                Had a great week there (2nd time staying at BVG). Check in was quick & easy as owners had pre-arranged everything. Had a problem with Air Conditioning - quickly attended to x maintenance. Staff at BVG are awesome. Listing was accurate, condo unit in good condition, clean, well maintained. Good communication with owner. Recommend "Deborah's Chili Beans", "Blue Shrimp" & the poolside bar at BVG.

                Working with Kevin (the owner) was a pleasure. The condo was beautiful. Beautifully decorated and everything we could have wanted or needed was provided. The view from the 3rd floor was breathtaking and we appreciated being on the 3rd floor as we never had to wait long for an elevator. The atmosphere was very relaxing and we were always able to get chairs at the pool. We also enjoyed long leisurely walks on the beautiful beach. We had the best of both worlds....we could totally just relax or if we wanted to do other things such as para sailing, swimming with the dolphins, going to the "Island", massages on the beach these too were also available and very easily accessible being in walking distance or a short bus or taxi drive away. We would highly recommend this condo and if we would ever go back, would certainly want to stay at this condo again.

                On our 7th trip to Ixtapa and 2nd to BVG we stayed in Kevin’s condo – 305S. Everything was great. We booked on Jan. 1 and arrived on Jan. 8. Since it was holidays it took me until the 5th for Kevin to receive my money, but it was all very smooth. Kevin delivered in a timely fashion everything he promised. When we arrived everything was clean and we had a terrific view of the pool and beach. Not as dramatic as the 12th floor where we had stayed before, but very different with the pool and trees being just below our sight lines. Being on the third floor gave much less elevator waits. The king size bed with balcony access from the master bedroom was beautiful and in the morning we would open the balcony doors and listen to the Pacific. Everything we needed was in the condo although all we did was snack and make frozen margaritas. We ate all of our meals out, except breakfast, which was just cereal on the big, beautiful, balcony. Great closet space and very nice, clean bathrooms. Also, plenty of towels, including the wonderful big, beach towels we are required to use. The pictures on the website are very accurate. BVG is far more relaxing than a resort. We never had problems getting a chairs or palapas, although they have started the resort practice of some people going down early in the morning and putting towels on the beach chairs and not getting there until after 11. I just think it is rude to save them for 3 hours! (That is really my only complaint) The pools are wonderfully refreshing and often we would lean on the edge with a cocktail and watch the sun go down. The snack bar at the pool was very reasonable with good food, and we ate lunch there most days. Tito, one of the waiters, took terrific care of us all week. Marcos, who is sort of a concierge type of person, took care of us for a couple dinner reservations in two of the finer restaurants and got us excellent tables on short notice.It was another awesome trip to Ixtapa and we are looking forward to the next one, and will stay at BVG for sure. We would be thrilled to stay in this condo again and certainly plan to if it’s available.North side vs South side: We stayed on the south side (near the center). The north side gets the afternoon sun and can be very hot until it goes down. The south side unit 305 had shade before sunset, so having a drink on the balcony was more enjoyable. I would say my preference would be South side, but I would be happy with North, so not t
